I'm back sharing a 2022 Christmas card with you using the Decorated with Happiness bundle from the 2022 July to December Mini Catalogue.
My card base is Blackberry Bliss, and my centre panel is Shimmery White with Soft Succulent ink blended in an ombre pattern. Before I adhered the blended cardstock to the cardfront, I:
- Stamped some of the pine leaf pattern on the edges of the Blackberry Bliss cardstock, using Blackberry Bliss ink; and
- Added a length of scalloped gold foil either side. I die cut this using one of the dies in the Penned Flowers Dies (part of the Hand Penned bundle).
I have cut two of the pine branches (from the Decorated with Pine Dies) in Soft Succulent and adhered them to the blended cardstock (you can either do this by using adhesive sheets, or you can also add a bit of Multipurpose Glue to a silicon sheet and use a sponge dauber to add it to the back of the die cut).
Next I die cut 2 of the baubles in three different papers - Blackberry Bliss cardstock, Very Vanilla Glimmer paper (in the Glimmer Specialty paper pack) and in Gold Foil. I used the adhesive sheets on the back when I cut these baubles. I adhered the Blackberry Bliss ones to the card first, and then filled in the extra pieces alternating between the glimmer paper and the gold foil. For the bows, I have used some Gold and Vanilla Satin-Edged Ribbon (in the July to December Mini Catalogue) which I cut in half lengthways, and some Gold Metallic Trim (from the Simply Elegant Trim Combo). I just made a bow out of both lengths together.
To finish my card, I stamped the greeting from the Decorated with Happiness Stamp Set, in Blackberry Bliss ink. My embellishments are the 2021-2023 InColor Opal Rounds.
This card is an adaptation of one of the 6 cards included in my Instant Download Decorated with Happiness PDF Class which is available in my PDF Class Shop if this is of interest to you.
